⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

July 14, 2015

Provence.



Next was Provence. We stayed in Lardiers in les Alpes-de-Haute-Provence – place of lavender and honey. The little village and region were straight out of some idea of perfection in Provence. The shutters, the roof tiles, the stone homes and streets, the blooms – from hollyhocks to poppies to sunflowers to lavender. Breathing felt heartening. I know we were there for just a turn, but I imagined life with these three little girls breathing this way perpetually…







































We stayed at Xavier's aunt's home. She has really impeccable taste and has retained the best parts of the 18th c. farm home and has grafted in just the right amount of fresh and modern touches. Wood beamed ceilings, original tiled floors, stone walls a foot thick, a garden teaming with butterflies. It is a country home for her and she is not there full time...if interested in renting out an amazing place in Provence, contact me...

"Breathing felt heartening." That sentence captured exactly how I feel when I am there. Just "living" feels so different. I hate returning to NY after being there, and I am counting the days until I won't have to. Beautiful beautiful photos.
